The original Sims is good, but you get the most fufillment by buying all of the expansion packs.
After a couple of weeks it does get a bit tedious, but its still a lift up when your bored.
In the game you make people, you can choose their star signs, personality, names, gender, adult or child and the colour of their skins (I recommend one adult male and one adult female).
Then you buy a lot (a lot of land) and build their house on it. There are loads of things that you can buy, from beds to suits of armour to a DJ's beat box.
Your Sims can interact with most things, each other as well. If they get to be really good friends, they can kiss and if they have a different surname, you can make them propose marriage.
It's interesting because you can have themed neighbourhoods e.g Medievil gothic, or Futeristic.
You can make really good Sim friends 'Play in bed' when you buy a certain bed. if you get all expansion packs you have eight neighbourhoods, with the original you only have one.
So that means you can have loads of houses with loads of family members in them.
One neighbourhood has about ten spaces for houses. The first two neighbourhoods have pre-built houses that the designers have made.
It also comes with a tutorial to help you if you are a beginner. There are ten career tracks for your sims, e.g Millatry, Politics, Life of Crime, Medical and Business.
When you start a job you start on the lowest level, if your Sim goes into work with a good mood, your Sim might get promoted. Child Sims have to go to school.
To make their grades go higher, you have to make them study. If their grades go below an F, they get sent to Millatary School, that means they leave the game.
All in all, this game is really good, has loads of different things, but it does get a bit boring after a while. Four out of five stars.
